  • The Original is rated somewhat better than the Performance.
  • In total, we have checked and analyzed 1,655 reviews of the two bags.

Both bags are available in these colors:

These packs are designed to make babywearing safe and comfortable. They are like an all-in-one baby carrier which you can carry on the front, back and the hip position. These two have as many similarities as differences.

Concerning shape and size, the Ergobaby Performance has contoured shoulder straps, and for slimmer fitting, it features a curved waistband. The Performance is also lighter than the Original.

Both have attached hoods, but the Performance hood has a zip-close pocket, but the original hood has no zipper. They both have shoulder straps, but the Original is more comfortable than the Performance.
